If you’re a member of the Who Dey Nation and those news Cincinnati Bengals uniforms have your mouth watering for another NFL season, don’t worry, you’re not alone in that respect. You’re in some pretty elite company as one of the best to ever throw that orange and black jersey on joined the conversation recently about his appreciation for those new stripes.

These days, Chad Johnson aka Ochocinco can often be found spending his time hanging with his good friends Brandon Marshall, Channing Crowder, and Fred Taylor on their highly popular and ultra-successful podcast I Am Athlete.

85 hasn’t changed one bit, at least on camera, as he can often be found hanging with NFL greats of the past and present along with other notables from around the entertainment world. He’s also always willing to tell anyone that will listen that his body is so well-tuned that constant trips to McDonalds can do it no harm (and he’s serious). He hasn’t lost his love for the city of Cincinnati though.

Recently, the man who hauled in 757 receptions for 10,870 yards and 66 touchdowns in ten seasons with the Bengals (if you include the two playoff games he appeared in) popped up out of nowhere, as he’ll sometimes do.

The new Cincinnati Bengals unis and Tebow both have Ocho thinking ‘comeback’.

As you know, it hasn’t been that long since Cincy unveiled their new uniforms and set the Who Dey Nation on fire with that New Stripes hashtag (it actually has a nice ring to it when you think about it). That’s a fact that hasn’t been lost on 85 as he recently spoke with and The Enquirer’s Tyler Dragon.

It appears some new digs and that Tim Tebow comeback with the Jacksonville Jaguars and his former head coach Urban Meyer has Ocho fired up. Take a look at this one.

Naturally, Johnson is joking as Dragon stated, but when you think about it, Chad Johnson on the field for ten snaps or so coupled with the idea of Ja’Marr Chase being in town to snag passes from Joe Burrow, his former teammate at the collegiate level, sounds like a winner right?

Ochocinco can still be effective for ten snaps, right? Nope! Hold on. Let’s back up. That one was almost too easy to fall into. We’ll put that one back on the shelf, but it sure would have been awesome to see Johnson and Chase on the same field at the same time. Oh well, that’s what we have Ultimate Team modes on EA’s Madden game for.
